For the past couple of seasons the Munster rugby squad has worn tailored suits manufactured by Magee of Donegal. Our tailoring team at Tom Murphys have been responsible for measuring the players for their tailored suits and helping in the selection of the appropriate styles and fabrics. We would like to think that our efforts combined with those of Magees of Donegal have ensured that the men in red have always looked their best off the field of play.
Just last week Michael, the longest serving member of our team made the second of his recent trips to Musgrave Park to suit up the Munster rugby panel for the forthcoming season. Armed with his measuring tape and measurement books he set about the task of suiting and booting Messieurs O Connell and co.
As usual there was great banter and craic as Michael went about the task of measuring these man mountains. The running joke was that the measurement tape might not be big enough to go around the massive torsos of Donnacha, Paul and Dennis Leamy and two tapes would have to be joined together. Current squad member and former Tom Murphys employee Tom Gleeson kept a watchful eye on the proceedings and also had a good slag off Michael.
